Creepmas Day 8: Kandy Coated Kackles Vol. 14 Creepmas Music!!!

So this year I'm celebrating Creepmas! 

From the 13 Days of Creepmas website: 

"A reaction to the continuing incursion of Christmas into Autumn and Halloween, CREEPMAS is a good-natured chance for Halloween lovers to exact revenge by bringing some spooky good cheer into the holidays or, more appropriately, the Hallowdays..." Read more about the inspirations behind this 13 day celebration HERE

CREEPMAS : A Celebration of the Hallowdays

So today's post is going to focus on Christmas tunes with a Creepmas theme! Since 2012 Artist Zach Bellissimo has made an annual project of putting together a series of Halloween mixes he calls "Kandy Coated Kackles". That same year he put out a KCK mix for Christmas called "The Creeps of Christmas: Halloween Music for Christmas". (Here's a link to his TUMBLR page with download links and cover art for the first 17 vols. of Kandy Coated Kackles be sure to check out vol. 18 that he put out for Halloween this year as well!)

All of the artwork on the album covers is Bellissimo's own work. He does an amazing job on these.

The tracks in "The Creeps of Christmas" include:

1. Scariest Damn Night- Excerpt from "Silent Night, Deadly Night"
2. It's A Monster's Holiday- Buck Owens
3. What's This?- Danny Elfman
4. You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch- Thurl Ravenscroft
5. Santa & The Purple People Eater- Sheb Wooley
6. Chainsaw for Christmas- Zombina & The Skeletones
7. Gremlins Attack Santa- Excerpt from "Gremlins"
8. Halloween on Xmas- Coffin Caddies

10. Santa Claus Conquers the Martians Trailer

28. Monster's Holiday- Bobby (Boris) Pickett & The Crypt Kickers
29. We Wish You A Scary Christmas- Disney's Haunted Mansion Holiday

Of course, in your hunt to find suitably creepy music for the Creepmas/Christmas season, you could do much worse than looking on the Creepmas site itself (though it may be a bit of a cheat to reference the site that invented the celebration...) for their recommendations of "Hallowday Music"! 

Happy 13 days of Creepmas! I'll be back tomorrow with another entry in the countdown, which may or may not involve a Goodwill Goody! Until then, Happy Hunting!
